I’m trying to catch up on some of my 2012 reviews before the end of the year, so today I’m doing two Transformers Prime figures in one review. Dead End and Wheeljack End may share the same body, but their unique head designs and paint apps make them very distinct figures.
It’s Monday night as I’m writing this review. Like a lot of other Masters of the Universe fans, I’m anxiously waiting to hear if the ultimate Castle Grayskull playset is going to be a reality, but the website must go on, and it seems I’m never at a loss for a Transformers review.
This week, I’m looking at the Transformers Prime Gaia Unicron. This is the first Prime import that I pre-ordered before the press images were even released. I’ve been pretty happy with Takara’s exclusive figures so far, so I thought I’d take a chance on this guy. If only I knew then what I knew now...
I’ve apparently been buying toys faster than I can review them, which is always a dangerous thing (especially for my wallet). So I’m doing a double dose of Transformers Prime since Bulkhead here has been waiting for a couple weeks already.
I thought I’d finish off the week with the other figure that came with Terrorcon Cliffjumper. Even though I already had a Hasbro Soundwave, I decided to try out the Takara version too because I wanted to see the differences and I love dem Microns!
Just when I thought I had finished up my Transformers reviews for a while, the second wave of Takara’s Prime figures bits. I guess it’s fitting timing that their version of Terrorcon Cliffjumper is released just after Hasbro announced he’ll be among their SDCC exclusives.
I’m trying to get the last couple Transformers Prime figure reviews up before the next wave starts to hit. This poor Vehicon got put on the back burner for a couple weeks while I worked out some of the newer figures. But it’s finally his turn.
